Building Inspections

The Building Inspection Division inspects and enforces Georgia State Minimum Standard Codes, as adopted and amended by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.  We require inspections on new and existing construction, remodel or renovations, water line and sewer line change out or repair, new and replacement HVAC equipment installations, new or existing gas line service or repair, temporary or permanent power, and many other items as permitted.  

The link below will take you to the City of Marietta Code of Ordinances regarding our local requirements and the current codes that we enforce.

No on-site burning of trash or other materials is allowed in the City of Marietta. The ordinance is enforced by the Marietta Fire Department.
Call 770-794-5466 with any questions you have regarding burning on site.

Developing/Construction/Code Enforcement

Development, construction activities and code enforcement requirements are regulated by the listed City government officials. It is the applicant’s responsibility to contact and confirm code compliance with all applicable officials before starting construction or development activities.

*Compliance with one code/regulation is not considered compliance with all other code/regulations. Failure to confirm code compliance, obtain proper permits before starting development plans may lead to expensive and unnecessary delays to the applicant.

A building permit must be obtained when the occupancy type of a building is altered.
